Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

This is our Winnebago Journey. It's our home on wheels. We're still adjusting to the 'living close' mode, and stepping over two corgis when we want to go in or out. The queen size bed gets small at bedtime because the dogs 'clan instinct' kicks in when we start turning off the lights and head for bed. It's a dream however to travel in as we go down the road. It handles great, and Jim loves the diesel motor. I like the color scheme, kitchen, and bedroom the best. We've taken many decor items off the walls at home to make the rig more home-like. I wish we had a king bed, bigger refrig, and a recliner but we wanted something fairly short so we could get into more parks and move around easier in tight spaces in parking lots. We were camp-hosts all summer in northwestern Illinois, so we broke the rig in during those 7-8 weeks living at White Pines State Park. We earned a dollar a day, but enjoyed our experience of living in the woods so much, we're signed up to do it again next summer. We met Phil and Rose, who were our neighbors next door in the park all summer, and have been able to meet up with them several times, once in Indiana, and last week in South Carolina. They're our sounding board as they have full timed in a fifth wheel trailer for 2 years now. They love the life and had no problem at all giving up their home in Alsip, Illinois.
